    One of the greatest games ever seen at Boundary Park, Latics come from 2-0 down to clinch what is now the Championship title

    And the fantastic radio commentary by Stuart Pyke.

    Too young to remember it, long time ago now!!

    West Ham's fans and players were celebrating together on the pitch at Upton Park, and it was a very eerie atmosphere when news fed through about what had happened at our game!

    The trophy even had to be re-engraved!

    I remember the last time we were in this division you lot were saying "15-20-odd years since this Prem event".

    Looking at what the Oldham fans are wearing in that video, I thought this was recent until I saw the '22 years ago' bit. ;)

    22 years ago we'd just finished below the likes of Runcorn, Methyr Tydfil and Altrincham.

    We did batter Slough Town 7-2 away that year though :Banana:

    We finished 13th in what's now the Premiership that season. How times change.

    Christ. Puts last week into context.

    In fact, as recently as 16 years ago we were in the ICIS Premier League, which is now known as the Ryman Premier League. Give me Wembley over Enfield, Aylesbury United and Heybridge Swifts any day :thumb

    We just about stayed up in Division 2. This was the season after we were demoted after beating Sunderland and then re-instated into Div 2. The following year Hoddle got us to 8th.
